1. Peñaranda Castle
A fortress located on a steep crag in the medieval village of Peñaranda de Duero, in the Burgos province of Spain. Originally dating from the 10th century, it was rebuilt in the 15th century, copying the design of Peñafiel Castle with its narrow walled precinct. In 1931 the castle, together with Avellaneda Palace and the village, was declared a Historic-Artistic Monument.
